Conscious Discipline Summer Institute

Good news!  If you can't make it to Orlando, Florida for the Conscious Discipline Summer Institute, you can attend the Satellite location in Chapel Hill, NC.  Summer Institute Satellite locations offer the same experience for attendees with Dr. Becky Bailey’s presentations shared by live video and Conscious Discipline Master Instructor, Elizabeth Montero-Cefalo, to facilitate at the local event. For over a decade, thousands have been changed by immersing themselves in the power of Conscious Discipline during our annual seven-day Summer Institutes. This professional development experience is not a workshop, but a life-changing encounter with real-life examples, real practice and real connections. Dr. Becky Bailey’s passionate, informative and entertaining style empowers you to discover the tools you need to break down whatever barriers are preventing you from lasting change.

Ashley will be a helper at this event and present at the breakout sessions.  You don't want to miss this event!

Conscious Discipline Summer Institute (CD1) Satellite Location-Chapel Hill, NC

Each year, the educators, parent educators and other professionals who attend this week-long life-changing event discover the secrets to a better way of teaching, parenting and connecting. They then bring a transformational message of hope, safety, connection and problem-solving back to enrich their classrooms, schools, homes and communities.

This is a rare opportunity to experience a live simulcast event with Dr. Bailey, facilitated by Loving Guidance Associate Elizabeth Montero-Cefalo onsite in Chapel Hill. Enjoy the transformational power of the Conscious Discipline Summer Institute (CD1) and connect with like-minded peers in your area for a fraction of the cost of traveling to Orlando!
